What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is a procedure whereby an indelible tattoo design is removed from the face or body of the patient. It is performed when patients want a different style or design for their tattoo or because of a change in their lifestyle.    

What are the types of Tattoo Removal procedures?

The most common type of tattoo removal is laser assisted tattoo removal. Other types include surgical skin grafting procedures, microdermabrasion, salabrasion or tattoo removal by rubbing with salt, cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen, tattoo removal using trichloroacetic acid that removes the top layers of skin and even surgical excision.  

Are Tattoo Removal procedures painful?

Numbing methods including injecting local anaesthetics, blowing cold air, placing ice packs and applying numbing creams are used during tattoo removal in order to minimise the pain involved.

When can I travel by air after Tattoo Removal?

Patients should not travel by air for at least one day after having nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures performed. Patients should wait for a few days after surgical tattoo removal procedures and get a certification from their surgeon that they are fit to travel by air.  

How long does recovery take after Tattoo Removal procedures?

It takes about one to two weeks to recover from nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures. Recovery from surgical tattoo removal procedures may take up to two months.

What after care is required after a Tattoo Removal procedure?

Patients should take any prescribed medications and apply any topical medication correctly. Patients should not wear tight clothing till the area is fully healed. They should not put any lotion or cosmetic on the treated area for at least three days. They should not get the area wet for at least two days. They should not expose skin to direct sunlight. They should not touch or scratch the treated area until completely healed.

The experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeonGS, South Africa, 09 12 20

Had lipo section and ab etching 24 hours ago. So far so good, limited discomfort. Dr Padilha, his anesthesiologist Dr Mooruth (who really is excellent), Diana the RN and the entire staff were fantastic. Obviously, it is too early to comment on the final result, but the experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeon and top-notch anesthesiologist. Based upon my experience thus far Dr Padilha clearly is five stars.
